Abstract:

This essay examines the significance of the flood as a place in the works of Bob Dylan. Through a consideration of the songs “Down in the Flood,” “High Water,” and “The Levee's Gonna Break” as reflections of the biblical flood, the 1927 Mississippi flood, and Hurricane Katrina, this essay interrogates the question of origins in Dylan's songwriting, using a Derridean framework to establish Dylan's skepticism towards origins and the prospects of new origins emerging from apocalyptic events.
